Currently on a cruise ship (what I consider a pseudo-utopia).
Currently thinking about money:
What would be the purpose/function of money in a “post-monetary society”?
What is money good for?
Money is good to buy meat/beef. In the Iliad, money was counted in how many oxen you owned, or however many slaves/gold bars you owned.
Money is good to buy a laptop (maxed-out refurbished MacBook Pro, ~$2000 USD). If you’re more frugal, it seems that an iPad (~$330) can fulfill 80% of the functions of a laptop. If you want the best ‘bang for the buck’ device, it seems an iPad Pro is a solid investment.
Beyond food, coffee, having a computer, and paying your rent/living expenses I don’t think that money is that valuable.
